Art in Paradise
The sign outside provides a clue; what we have here is an interractive (sic) art museum:
It’s also a clue that an English speaker has not been consulted during construction. Inside the entrance, there is confirmation of this:
It doesn’t look promising, what we are about to experience may be the epitome of crap. But, surprisingly, it is rather good.
Firstly, it is big. Many halls filled with artwork. And the artwork is cleverly executed, with a 3D effect which is very convincing and you have to get up close to appreciate that it is just painted onto a flat wall.
At least eighty per cent of the pieces are designed to support the interactive (sorry, interractive) nature of the gallery. The statute of confidentiality does not allow me to show you the fifty or so photos of she who must be obeyed doing her interactive thing; but you can get the idea from the following:
A harmless giggle for an hour or so, although the limited lighting may make it difficult for most visitors to capture reasonable shots (I was shooting at around 1/10th second, but I was using a tripod). Worth the 150 baht entrance fee, if you are a Thai.
If you are not a Thai, then you will be stung for 500 baht, which makes the show less attractive; especially as they couldn’t even be bothered to check the grammar and spelling for those people who are expected to pay extra. I will not be returning.
For more information, it is important that you watch this video right till the end, thank you.
